1985 Mercedes-Benz 280SE

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Of­ten seen as one of the last ‘proper’ Mercedes-Ben­zes, the W126 was a su­perbly built, won­der­fully en­gi­neered car that in big­gest-en­gined 560 form was su­pe­rior in most as­pects to a Sil­ver Spirit or a Bentley Turbo. The en­try-level 280SE of­fers the same grav­i­tas, but at con­sid­er­ably less cost. This car has been owned by the ven­dor since 1986 and has cov­ered 70,000 miles from new. It has been dry-stored for the last five years. Solid white paint, cloth trim and ‘dust­bin lid’ plas­tic wheel trims don’t de­tract one jot from this car’s char­ac­ter.
